Thank you for your review for Burns Hotel. It's great to see that you were overall happy with room and the location of the hotel, which is very suitable for getting into the heart of London. I'm glad you were happy with everything apart from delay getting your gluten free breakfast. This will be addressed in the near future so that this will shortly be a non-issue. Warm regards, Manu
